I entered a local photographic online competition called my360 Take Your Best Shot held in my home town East-London, South-Africa in early September 2014. Pollocks Photography have been a longstanding name for over 30 years in East-London when it comes to photography; this is not my first competition that I have entered with them. Not expecting much, I was quite amazed that my image landed a first place slot in the October finals in the Landscape Online entry.
The image was taken in 2005 on my way to a farmer in the Barkley-East District, it was my first visit there. I was totally amazed by the volume of new scenes that were presented to me, as around every corner something breathtaking was unfolding before me. Needless to say it took longer than expected to arrive at my destination.
I then went on to enter four more images in the print section and are awaiting the outcome of their standings there. The whole focus of this competition for me is name and brand building, winning is a bonus.
The categories I entered in the print section are Wildlife, Abstract and Landscape / Seascape; these images can been seen at the Vincent Park Mall where Pollocks have their display. I am waiting for them to update the images on their Facebook page. Below are the images I entered:
So, let’s wait out until the judges decision is final, the competition ends 28th February 2015. I will do a follow up post with my results outcome.
